American artist Diane Meyer has created a series of photographs entitled “Berlin” that captures the city of Berlin through an innovative stitching technique. Meyer took the photos at various locations throughout the city and then sewed transparent fabrics over them with lines of colored thread that follow the shapes of the original berlin-wall.
This technique creates a blurred effect that represents the complexity of visual memory and perception of the city. The artist emphasizes how the city of Berlin has undergone radical changes in its recent history and how its architecture has been transformed by post-war reconstruction.
A city in which the past and present coexist and overlap inextricably.
